Cinemascope: He Named Me Malala

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2015.

Plot line: After the Taliban tries to kill her for speaking out on behalf of girls' education, Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai emerges as a leading advocate for children's rights and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

This documentary about Malala is done in an interesting way - it uses interviews, photos, and animated art to tell her story. As a documentary, it has flaws for sure, but it is hard not to come away inspired and heartened after watching this one. Girl power indeed. 

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
